The Adventures of Odysseus - Year 6 Reading 5 Week Unit

This is a five week Reading unit to be taught alongside Hugh Lupton’s ‘The Adventures of Odysseus.’ I have taught this for a few years now and have found that children are highly engaged in the text. My experience has found that childrens’ progress in Reading increases because they get to analyse the text in detail and are eager to do so because they are excited by the story.
This unit is just Reading skills, I do also use a separate writing unit that goes alongside this and again I have found that linking writing to the class text brings further engagement, enjoyment and better outcomes.
I am still of the belief that teacher’s should help each other out and share resources that they find work so I hope you find this text and unit as beneficial as I have. Please do leave feedback if you find this resource helpful.
